Twilight's Nikki Reed and Paul McDonald may be engaged, but she told us exclusively that marriage isn't the only union they'll be making...

SheKnows got some face time with Twilight starlet Nikki Reed on Friday at the Step Up Women's Inspiration Awards hosted by Gilt City and the bride-to-be told us exclusively about a promise she made to fiance Paul McDonald.

"He made me promise him that at some point I would sing something with him just to be silly, and we would put it on an album," Reed told SheKnows.

This request isn't completely out of left field. Though modest about it, Reed has been singing and writing songs for years.

"I do write songs and am very into music," said Reed. "I sing also, but it sounds much better in the bathroom or a place with good acoustics. I will potentially be collaborating with him on the writing side too. His beautiful voice should not be ruined by mine."

One thing Reed isn't modest about though is her love for her American Idol sweetie.

"I just knew... way sooner than I would have thought," Reed told SheKnows of the moment she decided McDonald was the one. "It was very much in a fairytale way. I'm not going to say it was from the day I met him, but very soon after I was like, 'I could see myself spending my whole life with him.'"

With no wedding date set yet though, Reed is focusing on finishing up her Twilight obligations and looking toward the future.

When asked where she sees herself in 10 years, Reed told us, "I don't see myself not acting, but I definitely won't only be acting. There are a lot of avenues I'd like to pursue."

What do you guys think? Should Nikki Reed and Paul McDonald pursue a couple's career in music?
